Major Leagues: American League roundup

Associated Press
The American League Roundup …BOSTON ó The David Ortiz-Manny Ramirez combo struck again ó though for the first time in a while ó shifting the focus from Ramirez’s talk about being traded by the Red Sox and helping to end the Yankees’ eight-game winning streak with a 9-2 victory Sunday.
Ramirez doubled twice and drove in two runs just hours after saying he was “tired” of the Red Sox and would agree to a trade if it made him and the team happy. Ortiz homered and drove in three runs in just his third game after missing 45 with an injured left wrist.
Boston moved one game behind AL East leader Tampa Bay after preventing a three-game sweep. New York had been 8-0 since the All-Star break.

Tigers 6, White Sox 4
DETROIT ó Curtis Granderson and Marcus Thames homered and Detroit beat Chicago to avoid a three-game sweep.
Miguel Cabrera drove in two runs and Ivan Rodriguez went 4-for-4 for third-place Detroit, which pulled within 61/2 games of the AL Central-leading White Sox.
Twins 4, Indians 2
CLEVELAND ó Justin Morneau sparked a two-run, ninth-inning rally with an RBI double and Minnesota beat Cleveland to pull within 21/2 games of first-place Chicago.
The Indians have lost 4-of-5 to fall 13 games under .500.
